Once again, the UCSD snowski team proved to be a competitive presence at this season’s races. On the snowboarder’s side Irina Bataeva continued to impress as she placed second in Giant Slalom. On the Skier’s side Joe Breuer finished second in both Giant Slalom and Slalom, while first year team member Aly Kennedy finished second in Giant Slalom. Like Joe, she is a Junior Olympian and we’re stoked to have another boss skier on the team! We also had many more top ten finishers and two first time racers: Chris Johnson and Cat Ward! Congrats, you two, we hope you had fun!
We have another competition this weekend with a Slopestyle competition and a Rail Jam scheduled, but no alpine events, so we’ll hit the features hard and steezy so we get those style points. Until then, we’ll continue to pray for snow so we can have a boarder/skier cross event at least once this year.
